I have some updates to the Donation Page! People have tried to do monthly donations to me on Paypal, but found it cumbersome on their end. So, I’ve devised a way to re-create what Patreon does by creating a monthly payments button. I’ve included the most common donation amounts, and they will continue monthly for […]

I don’t usually post about personal things, but I’m breaking that rule today, because I’m trying to process something that happened to me recently. I was diagnosed with high-functioning autism a few weeks ago. At first, all I saw was the downsides. How it makes me difficult to work with, how it makes it difficult […]

Hello everyone! It has been a long, long, long, year. I graduated from college at long last, got a job, quit that job, and somehow, amidst all of that, I finished modernizing the website. My good friend Phil Smith has moved on to follow his own writing projects (should be something amazing, I’m sure! I’ll […]

I, dreamingfifi, have graduated from college, with a degree in Linguistics! I’ve now got the letters “BA” after my name. This means some changes will happen around here. Because I don’t have mountains of homework anymore, I can spend more time on the website! The Sindarin lessons will now be offered all year, not just […]

I’m back; I had a lovely time, and now school has started. Right now I’m focusing on finishing the new Elvish section of Arwen-Undomiel.com. It’s going to be awesome! I’m gathering voice actors (only people in Missoula, Montana whom I can train personally and record personally). It’s a lot of fun, but a lot of […]

Some of you may know this already, but last Saint Nicolas’ Day, my grandfather died. We were quite close. He was a brilliant anthropologist and quite gifted at learning languages. If you want to know more about him, do a search on Frank Bessac. I miss him terribly, to the point of distraction. Anyways, I’m […]

Wow, it’s been a long time since you heard from me, hasn’t it? Well, have I news for you! I GOT MARRIED! Check out the wedding website: I finally got some work done on the website! I’ve been updating the beta-readers section all along, and I did some small tweaking: I made a mock-up website […]

Hello everyone! It is the cheery hour of two in the morning, and I have a few updates to give you before I collapse on my bed. I have a story to tell you. Personally, I see myself as one of the last people in the world susceptible to this, but last month I was […]

Hello everyone! Please forgive me for not being there for so long! I do have a few excuses. I was moving to a new dorm room, and it took a few days to get the Internet service transferred, and I had to reinstall Windows twice. I haven’t done much with the website, but I did […]

I present to you the Elven Wedding Vows! Also, welcome the new Spring theme for the website! That’s a picture of Aewvain and her […]

Hail! I need to apologize to everyone for being so scarce about the website. I’ve been in solitary confinement, or house-sitting for my grandmother. She has a very slow dial-up connection and a computer out of the dark ages. I just about went crazy. Then my boyfriend’s grandfather died while I was there and unable […]

Thank-you everyone who sent condolences to me! The funeral was two days ago, and your messages helped a lot. I’ve changed the background for a winter theme; I need to move on and start focusing on my life again. Christmas is coming quickly, and I have finally found a way to make money through my […]

Sad news this day. My grandfather died December 3, 2005. So, I’ve changed the colors and background of the website for mourning. He was 69 years old; he died of lung cancer. Promise me that you will never smoke! dreamingfifi Rûm cuil ngurth. Life’s mystery is death.
